Southwestern American Literature is seeking submissions for its Spring
2009 issue, with poetry guest-edited by Keith Ekiss. Whether you’re
writing about untamed nature or threatened landscapes, strip mines or
strip malls, suburbs or reservations, we’re looking for the best in
contemporary Southwestern poetry.

How are Southwestern poets responding to the current environmental crisis?
How are writers furthering traditions (cultural or literary), investigating historical legacies, and finding innovative ways to address what it means to live, work, and
write in today’s Southwest?

Please send 3-5 unpublished poems as a Microsoft Word attachment, along
with a brief bio, to keith.ekiss@gmail.com. Deadline is January 15, 2009.

Published since 1971, Southwestern American Literature is a biannual
scholarly journal that includes literary criticism, fiction, poetry, and
book reviews concerning the Greater Southwest. It is coedited by Mark
Busby and Dick Heaberlin.
